Good call on the steam holes on the 400. I have to agree with your point on the coolant problems. I have herd some horror story's of motors never running cool. I still say . . . i would build a 400 or a 350 before a 307 any day of the week. However you rearly see a 307. might be a cool build.

I hear regular gas in going up to $5.00 a gallon this summer. If daily driven car I suggest of hanging on the 307 and careful what size cam you going to use. Better start thinking of getting a Fuel efficient car. Before building a 400.
Be warned.

I have decided to leave the 307 alone for now and build the 400.

lg1969: This car is just a weekend toy I have a honda for a daily. The camaro is just more fun to drive. I hear ya about the gas prices though, if it keeps up I wont be able to afford to drive my honda and it gets 37 mpg

I'm still wondering why you went to the effort of replacing an entire motor (307 in place of the 350) when all the 350 needed was a new timing chain?

I didn't know it only needed a timing chain at the time. That and I had no idea on the history or mileage on the 350. Looking back I guess should have pulled the timing cover with the motor in the car and just put a timing chain and cam in it.
